2005 Gibson LP Std Faded, Larry Corsa LCPG-344 Conversion


An exceptionally FLAMEY top on this first year Standard Faded! EVEN THE ONE PIECE BACK IS HIGHLY FLAMED! This guitar is “Near Mint.” Any signs of handling are too small to show in the photos. This Faded had very little play time when new, them sat in the case for years. Tone, as with all Fadeds is exceptional. Sustain for days! Satin Finish “solid” body with maple top – Neck shape: ’50s Rounded – 24.75″ scale mahogany set neck with 22-frets – 12″-radius rosewood fingerboard. Nice weight for an ’05 at – 8lbs – 12oz (3.97 Kg.) after conversion. Average weight of ’05s is mid 9 pounds, with some over 10 pounds. This Faded has it all – it’s clean, has super flame, and sounds incredible. I usually use aged hardware on Fadeds, but this one is so clean I went with gloss parts. With a brand new TKL Hardshell Les Paul case.
